Call for Your Participation – Session: “Practicing what we Preach”

As researchers and practitioners we help companies and organizations to design easy-to-use, usable, useful, and pleasurable websites. Sometimes, we seem to be "the shoemaker's children." We sometimes lack the time to put as much effort in our own websites as we advise others to do.

What factors you consider in evaluating UX initiatives?


As IA/UXUsability guys, We often face the situations of making decisions whether to implement new initiative or strike it off.

Ex: redesigning of an existing application, making your site compatible with mobile/handheld devices, implementing web 2.0/RIA style of interaction etc..

I'm interested in knowing how the IxDA community evaluates such new initiatives.

Please share your thoughts, any references to online resources.

Thanks in advance.

Tag cloud generators

Hi All,

I'm doing an evaluation of the publically accessible tag cloud
generators. Tagging is quite popular now, but most of the tagging

frequency of the words.
2. Given a URL of a web page, generate a tag cloud based on the

problem -- how to evaluate the quality of interaction design results of a
specific web-based service. Are there any standards existing in this field?
Or we have to do many usability testing to any interaction modules in any
iteration procedures?

Actually, the quality evaluation request is from the management board of the
company. They wanna control the quality of every ring of the chain.

I had ever thought that if I could use design pattern library as the

Heuristic Evaluation Criteria for Physical Devices

Good Friday!
I'm trying to find a list of criteria when doing a heuristic evaluation on a
physical device. So far the only thing I've been able to find is
Useit.com's list,
http://www.useit.com/papers/heuristic/heuristic_list.html which
is specific to screen interfaces. Is there anything out there for non-screen
based testing?

Thanks in advance!
